Risky play? Allow it at school!

Climbing on the slide rather than sliding down? That should be possible at school, says Barbara Vandorpe, as long as the children who want to slide down have priority. She advocates risky play at school. "Risky play allows children to push their boundaries and learn to deal with risks themselves."

What do you do when you see a toddler walking around with scissors? Do you panic? Do you get angry? Do you take them off immediately? It's tempting to intervene immediately in such a situation. But no matter how well you mean it, you do deprive a toddler of the opportunity to learn to deal with risks on his or her own.
